Alex sent Madeleine and me an email the other night. It was some sort of script he'd written, probably late at night. We didn't quite know what to make of it.
Yesterday, he came to my desk and said, "Come on, let's go to the studio."
He sat down and recorded what he'd written, something that was...well, quite unusual. It's about an obsession - one that seems to have overtaken the press corps, and maybe the nation as a whole.
"Fix it up," he told me. "A little music, some effects."
And so I did. It's a little too odd to put on the radio, maybe. But it shows a creative side of Mr. Chadwick that he doesn't often reveal. So we're putting it up here. Take a listen. If you love it, hate it, or couldn't care less, click on that comments link and let us know.
